T.D. Jakes: The “Paper” Pastor
Before we begin let’s take a look at what the Bible states about the qualifications of a pastor. 1 Timothy 3:3: “not given to drunkenness, not violent but gentle, not quarrelsome, not a lover of money.” Now one of T.D. Jakes inside men, David Lee Richardson, published a tell all book titled, “The Sunday Morning Stick Up: What Your Pastor Doesn’t Want You To Know About Tithes.”Mr. Richardson, was a member of Potter’s House church for years until his witness confession book on the mega tithe operation perpetrated by T.D. Jakes.
It should be no surprise T.D. Jakes is running a spiritual tithing racket because the man clearly loves money. He even stated once, “Jesus is a product that sells itself.” T.D. Jakes believes Jesus Christ is a “product” and that should tell you everything about his motives. What T.D. Jakes is very similar to the methodology of a drug dealer. His drug is Scriptural emotional alchemy where he uses Scripture to hook people on his beliefs. His goal is to take your money and he does this with no shame…in the name of the Lord.
According to Dallas–Scandal Media: they learned that mega-pastor, Bishop T.D. Jakes created quite a scene recently during a church service when he had a longtime elder of his church escorted out of the building by security for writing a tell-all book. Apparently, T.D. Jakes wanted Mr. Richardson’s two cents! In the book inside secrets are made public on how much T.D. Jakes charges the church Elders which is in the range of $1,000 dollars to attend. T.D. Jakes has never demonstrated any of the Power the Disciples did, yet he teaches. In essence the elders pay $1,000 and show up powerless and leave powerless. Meanwhile, T.D. Jakes lives in a $1.7 million mansion and milks the spiritually challenged congregation. Source
It is sad the sleeping masses follow this money grabber and I remember hearing a story of a dying woman who approached T.D. Jakes seeking his special “anointed” prayer. He told her to tithe and he would contact her later. She tithed and never heard from him again before she left this Earth. T.D. Jakes is also changing the Gospel to include same sex unions in his church. Anyone following this charlatan will continue to be led by a man who believes Jesus is a product.
